The Homunculus, Latin for "little man", is a truly tiny creature that lives in the brain and controls it from the inside. Some claim he is responsible for all non-basic functions of man; perhaps the enjoyment of music, or perhaps its creation.
"Tiny Creatures" return less tiny this time around. They've beefed up their sound and lost the tendency to scatter. Still, they won't have a moment's rest. From beatbox layers recorded live into a delay pedal to stinging guitars to a harmonium competing with crappy, lo-fi keyboards and vocals that conjure images of the Red Army choir, "Homunculus" rides the fine line between eclectic and cohesive and falls square in the middle. This is the second release for "Tiny Creatures" to come out on Birdsong.
